Getting, and keeping, young people reading.


Welcome to the website for the 2012 North East Book Award.

As well as giving you lots of information about the books on the shortlist, the authors who wrote them and ideas about what to read next it also gives you the chance to have your say about what you’re enjoying reading – and maybe even what you’re not! – and to comment on the views of others.

We enjoy getting you feedback about the website, and the award itself, so email us at with your views and suggestions, we’d love to hear from you.

Get reading – and writing! This website can only be as good as you make it.

This year’s shortlist is here.
